A deck of cards inspired by Dashwood’s passion for typography. Each card featuring a letterform and copy briefly discussing an aspect of the particular typeface. Not just the usual who, what and when, but interesting usage and opinion.
The face cards were all illustrated by Dashwood with each character being based on one of their team, including Hamish Meikle, Creative Director and Andrew Gair, Managing Director being the two ‘jokers’.
Cards were sent to all of Dashwood’s clients and suppliers as a Christmas gift. Following the Dashwood tradition of ‘useful holiday gifts’, playing cards were the perfect item for a Kiwi summer holiday.

“Designing a line of packaging for meat products marketed by the El Gaucho restaurant chain. The butcher’s block and knife were the iconic images for this project, showing the beginning of the journey towards a juicy, premium steak. In the design concept, we chose to show the world of meat and its culinary environment rather than showcasing the cut of meat itself. As a customer, all that was left to do was trust the brand, which has the ability to convey values of quality and flavor, and to rely on the subtle seasoning that is characteristic of the meat, however it is served.”

“Conceptual whiskey bottle / packaging design. Suitable for small run premium batches, the label is a piece of the actual barrel the whiskey was aged in. Following a process of drying, pressing and silk screening the label is attached to the bottle and can be removed to be used as a coaster or simply as a collectible once the bottle goes dry. Each piece is naturally unique, maintaining the black color from the charring process and slight aroma.”

“This project was based on a lyric or song from The Beatles. I choose the song “Taste of Honey” and turned it into a honey brand. To showcase the variety of flavors in an elegant way, I designed a minimal type treatment and paired it with a honey comb pattern. The elements of the honey comb pattern also make the the bee and flower icons shown throughout the packaging and recipe cards.”

Believe it or not, Canadians share an indelible spirit and commonality — we are hard working, nose to the grindstone underdogs that stop at nothing to get the job done. Despite our modest stature, conservative stiff lips and ever apologetic disposition, we rise to the top when the game bell rings.
Mike Weir embodies this spirit and among his Canadian sport icon peers, stands out as the true Underdog. In sport as in wine, Canadians continue to stand up to the challenges, capitalize on timing and execute on hard work as did Mike Weir leading up to his win of the 2003 PGA Masters.
Mike Weir’s Underdog Wine Co. celebrates all of our achievements as Canadians — you, me, wine, design, sport, innovation — Canada is right there leading the way. Congrats to Mike Weir, Ontario wine and all Canadians.

“yum. is a playful and fictional chocolate bar brand I created for a class in college. We had to create a brand identity and theme as well as the packaging. The idea behind yum. is to embrace the simplicity of chocolate. Chocolate is a joyful experience that can be felt as soon as it hits the tongue. Ultimately, this experience can be summed up in one word: yum. Color pops were brought in to a stark white background to hint at the burst of flavor and the fulfilling experience as soon as the chocolate is eaten. When the packaging is opened, the chocolate bars smile, bringing in a fun and playful nature to the brand. Simple, delicious chocolate. That is yum.”
